Serious Texas work accidents can be life altering and change your family forever. You deserve to be compensated for your losses and the harm you’ve suffered after an employer has failed to take proper safety precautions to protect workers.
Our Houston work accident attorneys caution that in Texas, not everyone is covered by worker’s compensation insurance. Many employers choose not to carry the coverage. And those employed as independent contractors, as many in the construction industry are, also are not covered under Texas workers’ comp.
It’s important for you to find out your legal options after a serious work accident. Most accidents have a two-year statute of limitations in which you have to file your claim or you lose your rights to it.
Example of a Fatal Texas Work Accident in Houston
On Friday in northwest Harris County, workers were going below to fix a broken water main when the walls of the excavation gave way and the ground collapsed and buried them. One worker was pronounced dead at the scene, but rescuers were able to free the other trapped worker. The surviving worker was injured in the traumatic collapse accident. OSHA investigators were reportedly notified about the accident. (Associated Press by way of newschannel10.com, 12/6/13) Our thoughts and prayers are with the injured worker hoping for a complete recovery, and with the families, friends, and colleagues of both workers.
The Houston work accident attorneys at Denena Points, PC emphasize that inadequate temporary bracing is often behind the sudden ground or structural collapses that occur during construction or repair work. The employer might have failed to provide sufficient materials or equipment for the job, the material might have been substandard, or poor employee training in proper bracing and safety procedures might have been at fault. Whatever the cause, injured workers and their families deserve fair financial compensation after they’ve been harmed by an on-the-job accident.
